More notes about the marina

Marina del Faro is a small basin on the W side of the river Sile on the Adriatic coast of Italy, which enters the sea eight miles NE of the Porto Lido entrance to the Venetian Lagoon. The marina is in a small basin about half a mile from the river entrance, immediately S of the larger marina of Marina del Cavallino. It offers 100 berths for yachts up to 16 metres in maximum depths of 5.0 metres.


Call Marina del Faro on VHF channel 09. Alternatively, telephone or e-mail in advance for berthing information and reservations.


Access to Piave Vecchia is via the mouth of the Sile river/wiki/Marina_del_Faro#Sile_riverWorld icon.png Sile river [[Marina del Faro#Sile river|Sile river]] 45°28.690'N, 012°35.071'E , which is flanked by two moles extending into the sea among the miles of beaches lining this coast. The prominent Piave Vecchia lighthouse on the W side of the entrance is visible from some considerable distance. The entrance is narrow and a good lookout is needed for other vessels leaving the river, especially in poor visibility. An approach should be made on a course of around 335 degrees to keep in the deepest water. The better depths are on the W side, close to the lighthouse. The channel here is dredged to a depth of 3.5 metres. However, as with most of the harbours along this coast, entry is best during the last hour or so of the tide, which can add up to a metre to the depths in the entrance. Entry should not be attempted in strong onshore winds. The Marina del Faro is situated on the W bank of the river about half a mile from the entrance, immediately S of the larger marina of Marina del Cavallino.


Berthing assistance available on request. Berths are on catwalks around the basin and in the river itself. All berths have mooring posts for four-point mooring.
